Brief Answer:
Can be due to gout.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain on the top of the foot can be arthritis or gout - caused by joint inflammation. You can start with anti inflammatory pain killers which will help in reducing the inflammation and pain. In case the symptoms are persistent then do consult an orthopedician and get oral steroids and stronger medicines prescribed.
I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.
